The Venue

The Texas Amphitheater is the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in the state of Texas.  It opened in 1989, built as the perfect home for The Promise in Glen Rose.

The $8.5 million venue, which is now available for outside rentals, has 3,250 fixed seats and the capacity to seat a total of 5,000, including its bleachers and lawn.

The Promise is the only outdoor production with a moat: a 45,000 gallon waterway, running the length of the structure and separating the stage from the seating area.  The Texas Amphitheater stage has 40 ft. walls and arches that tower above a 4,000 sq. ft. tri-level stage.  It is also the only outdoor theater in the nation with a rain curtain.

The venue consists of a 15,000+ watt sound system! Not to be out-shown, the lighting system boasts over 850 individual instruments and more than two dozen special effect lights, fog machines, follow spots, winches, etc. (for you techies)!
